The pace of apartment-building in Boston continues unabated (as does speculation about where the damned rental market is actually headed price-wise). The latest entrant? The longtime DoReMi Karaoke studio at 442 Cambridge Street in fabulous Allston.
Plans recently filed with the Boston Redevelopment Authority call for demolishing the 17-year-old studio as well as the house behind it; and then plunking in its place a four-story building with at least 40 apartments as well as commercial space and underground parking (there would be both 40 parking spaces and 40 bike racks, 'cause that's how Boston rolls nowadays). A final O.K. is a ways off, pending city and public review. Stay tuned.
